Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Shelton Benjamin from NJPW 2013

This was for Nakamura’s IWGP Intercontinental Championship.

This was a great follow-up to Shelton’s win over Nakamura in the G1. Shelton jumped out to an early advantage in that one by attacking Nakamura during his introduction. He tried it again here, but Nakamura was ready for it.

That set the whole tone for the match. These were familiar opponents who were going to be doing whatever it took to win. It progressively got more and more exciting and tense as both guys were putting in a great effort.

Shelton tried to catch Nakamura with the Paydirt out of nowhere again, but Nakamura was ready for it this time. SUCH GOOD AND SMART WRESTLING YAY NJPW! Nakamura won cleanly. (***3/4)
